|Abstract||The author starts by identifying "a lack of information on curricula for business programs offered outside the U.S." He supposes that "the educational system of the U.K. receives [comparatively] little press in the U.S. because the U.K. is simply not considered to be 'foreign' enough to garner much attention in international education circles." An underlying (mis)assumption may be "that the educational systems of the U.S. and U.K. must be similar because, linguistically and politically at least, the U.K. appears more closely aligned with the U.S. than with much of continental Europe. ... By initially concentrating on a degree scheme that may be unfamiliar to most Americans, then, a main purpose of this article is to alleviate some potential misunderstandings about graduate business education in the U.K. ... This article considers the history and purposes of diploma schemes in Britain, specifically as the diplomas relate to the now more popular MBA degree. The DBA and MBA programs at Cardiff Business School, Wales, U.K., are used as examples in order to demonstrate differences between not only the DBA and MBA schemes but also between MBA programs in the U.K. (and, by extension, the rest of Europe) and in the U.S. (DIPF/Orig./Kr.).|
